We have a very special 1955 Salmson 2300 S ‘Sport’ on offer. Salmson was a French engineers firm that was involved in the production of cars, aeroplanes and pumps. Introduced in 1953, the Salmson 2300 S ‘Sport’ we have on offer is the last model Salmson ever produced. This sporty 2+2, designed by Henri Martin, is one of only 188 Henri Chapon bodies’ examples produced until 1957. Thanks to the quick 105 Hp, 2300 Twin Cam engine coupled to a Cotal, clutchless manual, gearbox, the rallying potential was readily established. The Salmon became a very successful contender, winning the 1953 Rally Des Alpes, successfully participating in the ’55,’56 and ’57 24-hour of Le-Mans, in 1956 it completed the legendary Mille Miglia as well as the Tulip Rally/ Rally de Charbonnieres. This Salmson is a sports car Pur-Sang and is eminently suitable and eligible for most historic racing and rallying events in the world, including the Mille Miglia. In the past this car was restored and mechanically overhauled retaining its authenticity. The cars’ interior is extremely nice and more or less still fully original. The fine bodywork is nice and straight with lovely chrome decorative strips. This unique car is suitable for any legendary event. It is reputed that worldwide no more than 80 examples still exist. A Salmson is rarely available on the open market.
